We know from all we’re hearing that the pandemic is still with us so our theatre will continue to adhere to all Public Health advice and guidelines. At the time of writing this, mask wearing is not required, but we support each person’s plan to feel safe and secure and so if wearing a mask works for you, please do. If it doesn’t, that’s okay too. If Public Health rules change, so will ours.
Please note that for this show, matinees are on the Sundays.

THE STORY: Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.
